Steering clear of lawsuits, especially those stemming from construction disputes, is always a good idea. To do so, make a point of getting all important agreements in writing. This will avoid miscommunication and selective memories. Do the same with any subsequent modifications. If things aren’t working out, document the problem with written notice to the other side. Then if you reach a point where your disagreement can’t get resolved, remember these pointers to gain an edge if you have to sue:

There is a little known but powerful tool for subcontractors and suppliers. It allows them to seek immediate payment on undisputed contract obligations due on public projects from contractors who have already been paid.
While a contractor may find it preferable for cash flow reasons to simply keep a subcontractor waiting, even after receiving payment for its portion of the work from the municipality or public entity, it is neither legal nor smart. Contractors would do well to heed the rulings by Florida’s courts which have made clear that ignoring the prompt payment statute comes with the penalty of paying accrued interest, attorney’s fees and costs. A subcontractor is entitled to various immediate remedies for rapid recovery of any undisputed contract obligations.
And it isn’t just on public jobs that subcontractors have this level of protection. Other Florida statutes provide similar guidelines for contractors performing private work. Florida Statute §713.346 states in pertinent part:
Any person who receives payment for constructing or altering permanent improvements to real property shall pay, in accordance with the contract terms, the undisputed contract obligations for labor, services or materials provided on account of such improvements.
Ever mindful of the uneven bargaining position in which most subcontractors and suppliers find themselves, the legislature sought to level the playing field.
